Baked Oysters

September 25, 2012

Author Notes: This is the tastiest, easiest appetizer for a crowd on a limited time budget. You can even make the butter a day ahead and top the oysters right before company arrives. I also cut down on ingredients by using prepared organic herb stuffing mix, which you can find at any supermarket. alyson mance
